Get ready for the ride this summer of international soccer.
Two years of World Cup qualifying begins for the United States tonight at 6 central time when they host cinderella story Antigua and Barbuda in the semi-final round of World Cup qualifying.
I am in Tampa calling this game with Taylor Twellman from Raymond James Stadium.
COULD CAMERON GET START?
This is a good question because both left backs used by Jurgen Klinsmann are out injured. Both Fabian Johnson and Edgar Castillo have muscle injuries which might leave the door open for Geoff Cameron, Oguchi Onyewu to move into the middle pushing Carlos Bocanegra wide.
Michael Parkhurst could also play outside back.
The U.S. backline continues to be a point of contention with Bocanegra, Onyewu, Clarence Goodson, Steve Cherundolo all 30 years of age or older with a World Cup two years away.
Mexico starts their qualifying against Guyana.
